Kayleigh Hunter reports on Adventures in Understanding

Kayleigh was introduced by Greg Mumford, Director, Youth Services. Our club sponsored Kayleigh to attend Adventures in Understanding .

Thank you for inviting my Dad and me here today and for sponsoring me to attend Adventures in Understanding. I was initially on the waiting list but got in! Lots of gear was required and the visit to Tim Horton’s on our way there was a must! Started with a blanket toss! Canoeing through locks. Saw a fox! Toured Trent University and canoed through five locks to Lakefield college – amazing storm and flyaway tent! At Camp Kawartha went rock climbing and ate in a teepee. Archery, knife and axe throwing. Had a teaching with an Elder. Got a soapstone to carve. Paddled 22km on Day 5! Did some drumming and learned about wild rice. Saw shooting stars on our last night ☺ Sweetgrass gift (mind, body, health significance) Thanks! Future candidates should have an open mind and love to learn. No phones allowed and now I’m using mine less. I am now reading and writing on indigenous texts in English at school.

Heather Kembel thanked Kayleigh and presented her with muffins!
